Meals From The Heart, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC), packs meals at correctional facilities throughout Minnesota. In fact, we hope to pack meals at all of the Minnesota DOC facilities in the next year. Over 75,000 meals are packed in a single Serving Beyond The Bars event. All meals packed with at Serving Beyond the Bars events benefit local food shelves.

Unlike typical community and corporate events that are funded by the organization hosting the event, Meals From The Heart seeks individual and corporate sponsors to help make our Serving Beyond The Bars program a reality.


“Many people judge these men who have committed violent crimes as not worth anything. Some prisoners have no one come to visit. The arrival of your team and the offering of meaningful service to the community was a gift beyond dollar value. How can one put a price on hope in the life of a hopeless man? We thank God for you, your team, and your church.”
